The Sustain

One of the truly neat things about the guitar is its natural sustain. Play a note and then sit back and listen to it roll.

There are very few instruments that have this characteristic, the two most notable being the piano and the orchestral harp. The downside to the natural sustain of the piano is that it can be thunderous.

This Week At The Reel Deal

on February 25, 2015 - 8:50am
Reel Deal Theater

We had 25 contenders and only one winner for our second annual Reel Deal Academy Award Contest. If Boyhood would have won instead of Birdman, I would have had to award about 20 six-month passes.

Birdman, the quirky but original film was a bit of surprise but maybe the Academy is looking for original, non-sequel films. This is a good thing as the days of four, five or even six sequals are getting real old.

Having said that I am also convinced the Academy is becoming more disconnected with movie patrons.
